A good white shirt is the most versatile item in any wardrobe - it suits all ages and body types and works with almost all styles and colours. The key to finding the right shirt comes down to working it in with your own style - for example, if you have a relaxed style, stick with an oversized version or if you prefer to be more put together opt for a tailored shirt with delicate details. The key to "getting it right" can be as simple as how you tuck it in, how you roll the sleeves or how many buttons you undo.
I got this white shirt from, believe it or not, Kmart! I was shopping for some home wares and saw this and instantly knew the cut was spot on. I love the oversized look with a slightly tighter sleeve than expected and the soft cotton fabric.
I picked up these shoes and this bag from an op-shop...my vintage love never dies! I have been on a roll with my vintage shopping lately, picking up loads of designer and high street bargains. Check out some of the things I picked up on my last successful op-shopping trip here. I have recently launched a new Personal Styling Service which is all about utilising vintage bargain to build a stylish wardrobe with op-shop pieces. Click here for details!
The jeans are super old and recently had some repairs but I love them too much to chuck them out and the distressed detailing on the knee tones down the office associations with the white shirt paired with black.
The faux fur coat is another vintage find, i have owned it for years and remember when I stumbled upon it in a pre-loved store and fell instantly in love. From then on I have been always on the hunt for the next faux fur item to add my wardrobe, of which I have about 4 now. Adding a faux fur coat to this look is a little unexpected but that is exactly why I went for it. I like the clean, classic white shirt with denim combo juxtaposed with an oversized vintage coat - it is just wrong enough to be right!
